      OH MY GOSH this is so good, I LOVE IT! My husband is hispanic and loves menudo, but I can't stand it, so I was looking for a good substitute and this is IT! I make this recipe EVERY week now! I like to add an extra can of hominy too. Definately add the squirt of lime, chopped fresh onions and cilantro before serving, that really makes this even more delicioso! mmmmm YUM!

      I used shredded chicken instead of pork and it turned out great. I made the chicken and set it aside and spooned the soup over it. I also added a couple of jalapenos and a little less chili powder and ended up adding about 2 cups of the broth (from the boiled chicken) to make a larger batch of the soup. A longer simmer time does make a difference. And don't forget the cilantro it gives that final touch. Loved it!

      Very easy and tasty. Will definitely make again. I did add cumin and a little dash a cayenne pepper. Thanks for the recipe.
